Default Wednesday Midweek

I seem to remember posting last Wednesday that I was so glad it was midweek and the weekend was in sight as I was already so unhappy at the new job. It already seems so long ago!
As an aside, to those of you who have young children and/or grandchildren, please please investigate thoroughly any child care centre/home/babysitter you send your child to. Not just with an appointment, but drop in unexpectedly and see what goes on. Think of your child's needs and interests and make sure it is the right placement for them.
Having worked for 10 years in one of the best in Montreal, I was appalled at what I saw last week.

Meanwhile, I seem to be recovering from whatever nasty bug hit me Sunday night. Head is clearing up, breathing is easier, and I missed a completely beautiful hot day yeserday by sleeping all day. Today looks nice too, so I hope to get out there and get some sun, before volunteering this afternoon at the ship.

Happy Wednesday all!

donna

Hi Kids,
Another day of hhh, that's ok..I am just pretty much going to lay low, after a couple of errands. I have to deliver a dress to one of our customers, at an assisted living community...how's that for customer service! I also need to go buy fabric, to begin another diaper cake, another girl one.

Bruce's garden is yielding quite a crop of cucumbers so far, so, I have mad a lot of that onion & cucumber marinated dish. So nice on a hot day...tomatoes, peppers and eggplants will hopefully be ready soon.

Make it a good one.

Good morning everyone.

It's going to be a hot one again today. Temps are forecast for 100+ and a record "heat index" is also predicted.

Yesterday started out good but I had a "brain vacation" around noon and the rest of the day was shot. Betty took the grandkids to the beach and they had a fun time. I'm not sure what's on the agenda for today. I've been up since 3 a.m. because of "tummy problems" and I am feeling pretty tired between that and yesterday's "vacation". The grass really needs mowing but I'm not doing it until it cools down a bit. I'm glad I don't have an HOA they would be nagging the heck out of me.

Donna: I agree about daycare. There are some pretty bad places out there but there are also some pretty good ones. I know that here at "Hard Liquor and Handguns Daycare." we make sure to have at least one grandparent for two kids and we only give the kids the "special juice" when we need to take a nap or watch our soap operas. :o

My finger is doing fine but it sure makes it hard to type, especially using this netbook.

I hope everyone stays cool today and has a wonderful Wednesday.

Take care,
Mike

Good Morning CruiseMates!
Donna you are so right!

Mike I needed your "special juice" recipe last night. The boy had me up at 4:00 a.m. I finally just threw him in bed with me and then we both fell asleep until about 8.

There's not much else happening today. All is well. D/H will be home in two more days. I remembered to put the trash out this morning. The air is cranked up full blast and all is well in my world.

Hope you all are well, and you have a great hump day!

Good Morning cruisemates! The beautiful weather pattern we had is dissapating. Temps are still getting into the high 70s, but it's being blended with afternoon thundershowers, and yesteray a mix of hail. More of the same forcast for the next couple of days.

Yesterday I put together some beautiful looking kabob skewers, and I've had them marinating overnight. Going to grill them tonight, and I'm betting they are going to be scrumptious.

Between now and then if we can avoid the showers, we'll get in a game of golf.

Good morning
As Mike said it is going to be a hot one here in Chicago too. Went to turn in my city sticker and get a new one for my new vehicle and when I got home I see that the very unfriendly lady at the secretary of state put down the wrong make and model of my new vehicle, so lucky me gets to go back today! I should have checked it before I left but for some reason I didnít. I wonder if itís a job requirement to be nasty to work there.

Anyhow just an errand or two to run for today and then Iím staying in where itís nice and cool. Have a great day!

Good morning from a hot Texas. I have been up for hours, taking care of all the stuff I needed to do, and put off, because of morning classes. We thankfully have weds. off.

I needed a new bathing suit because I am having to wear two a day, and hate wearing a wet bathing suit. I found an old one in my drawer, and put it on to wear to class. Bad idea!! Was so big that when I got to jumping around, both girls tried to get into one cup. I was so glad when class was over with.

I am still trying to get rid of the saddness over the death of my former student. Everyone is talking about it, so it's difficult to get away from.

I hope all of you very a good day. You all continue in my prayers.

Love you Todd

Luanne

Default Wednesday Midweek

A late good morning to you all. I had computer problems this morning. Yes, it's going to be another hot day here in SoCal, too.

Keith just headed to the gym. I have errands and housework to do . . .

Afternoon all.

Luanne, you had me laughing at the girls tying to get in one cup. Yep, time for a new one. Sorry about your former student.

Been running around in circles the last few days. Went to Little Rock yesterday to see one of my specialists. Been trying to get the PCP to take care of most things because of having dad, but I take a couple of meds that need PAs, and he won't do them. So, I had to make the trip down there and sit and wait for a few hours in the waiting room because the guy is popular. (He is a very good doctor.) I almost exploded when I saw how easy it is to do a PA. The nurse typed in the pharmacy, my name, and the meds in the PA website of the insurance company and got immediate approval. I'd like to go hit my PCP upside the head. I'd change PCPs but I saw how difficult it is to find one when I took dad. There are too many people in this area and not enough docs. Guess I'm stuck with him, but I may have a few words with him next time I see him.

Rant over. Have a good one all.
